A Sunday Kind of Love

On Sunday July 26, 2015 my friends Cindy and Bob hosted a lovely afternoon gathering of friends to come and meet their first grandchild, baby Gracelyn.  It was wonderful to finally meet "Gracie" and to hold her and welcome her to our world.  She is a perfect little doll. Here's a little slideshow of our afternoon together.

A Summer Italian Group Meet-up

My Italian language group does not meet during the summer months but we manage to get together every so often. This past Friday a few of us met for lunch at Angelo's Deli on 2nd Street in the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach.  Angelo's Deli has recently expanded to the storefront on the corner of 2nd and La Verne.  We enjoyed meeting our friends for a nice summer outing.

A Lazy Mid July Day Italian Style With The Tre Stagioni

My friends Mitra and Marion and I spent a lazy, hazy mid July day having lunch together and then watched two wonderful italian movies: "Pranzo di Ferragosto" (Mid August Lunch), and "Pane e Tulipani" (Bread and Tulips). 
Nothing easier or more relaxing on a hot summer afternoon, than to be with good friends


eating good food, 

 drinking wine,

and watching good movies 

Plenty of time for rest and relaxation equals a perfect summer afternoon with friends.

Barb, Marion and Mitra are  the "Tre Stagioni"

Asian All You Can Eat Buffet

On a recent Saturday night my brother and nephew told me about a  good all you can eat Asian buffet restaurant called Kami Buffet and Grill. Located at 909 San Gabriel Blvd. Rosemead, California 91770.* (Just off the 90 freeway).

    We decided to try it out.  This place was very busy but we did not have to wait long for a table. There are many bustling waiters cleaning tables, taking empty plates and keeping everything moving along very quickly.  The food choices are amazing.  Lots of different types of sushi,

 many types of seafood including crab legs and whole soft shell salt and pepper crabs.

 You can also assemble your own stir fry ingredients and someone will take your plate with meat and veges and stir fry it adding sauces as they cook your food in front of you.
 Korean bbq area

many standard chinese dishes

 shrimp cooked in many different ways, dumplings and soups too
 Desserts are plentiful including fresh fruit to dip in a chocolate fountain, ice cream and many types of cakes

 Well we were happy campers at the end of the evening.  Every once in awhile an all you can eat buffet fits the bill.  We liked Kami for just that reason. 

*Kami is open daily from 11:00 10:00 p.m.  Casual dining, plentiful seating but expect to wait during the busy lunch and dinner hours. Free parking.
